About Group Therapy

Group Therapy helps you to share your experiences with a small group of your peers and a counselor. Group therapy is as effective and in some cases, more effective than individual therapy. Many clients find group helps them to feel a greater sense of connection to others and normalizes what they are going through.

This is not a drop in appointment. Attendance is limited and a full semester’s commitment is required. Prospective group members will be scheduled to attend a group therapy screening appointment with the group leader(s) prior to attending.
